Pizzaseminar am 30.08.2011 - Afghanistan after Bin Laden

Ausnahmsweise wird das Pizzaseminar außerhalb des BIGS statt finden. Dr. Stephen Biddle vom Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) wird im kleinen Kreis zu dem Thema “Afghanistan after Bin Laden” vortragen. Eine Anmeldung ist nur nach persönlicher Einladung möglich.

Afghanistan after Bin Laden:

The case for waging war in Afghanistan has long rested significantly on the threat of al Qaeda terrorism. With Osama bin Laden’s death last May, is the case for war sustainable? And if so, to what end and with what means and resources? This lecture will consider these questions from an American perspective, with implications both for the US and for NATO.

The Speaker:

Dr. Stephen D. Biddle is senior fellow for defense policy at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Before joining CFR in 2006 he held the Elihu Root chair in military studies at the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute (SSI), and has held teaching and research posts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA); Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs (BCSIA); and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Office of National Security Programs.
Dr. Biddle is a member of the Defense Policy Board, and has presented testimony before congressional committees on issues relating to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, force planning, conventional net assessment, and European arms control. He served on General Stanley McChrystal’s Initial Strategic Assessment Team in Kabul in 2009, on General David Petraeus’ Joint Strategic Assessment Team in Baghdad in 2007, and as a Senior Advisor to General Petraeus’ Central Command Assessment Team in Washington in 2008-9.
